Description

For civil, mechanical, and aeronautical engineering courses. This book is a comprehensive, cross-referenced examination of engineering mechanics of solids. Traditional topics are supplemented by an exposure to several newly-emerging disciplines, such as the probabilistic basis for structural analysis, matrix methods, and plastic limit analysis.

Features

NEW TO THIS EDITION

  • NEW - Includes a greater number of chapters to focus on specific topics and to improve the overall presentation sequence.
  • NEW - Includes an expanded chapter on Mechanical Properties of Materials.
  • NEW - Emphasizes the SI system of units.
  • NEW - Introduces a number of avant-garde topics including an advanced analytic expression for cyclic loading and a novel failure surface for brittle material.
  • NEW - An elegant formulation for determining the three principle normal stresses in terms of the invariants of the stress deviator is provided.
  • NEW - Introduces some vibration problems as well as 95 new problems and 80 problems containing new data.
  • NEW - Most of section properties are given in the two systems of units.
  • Retains its character from the first edition as a complete traditional text on mechanics of solids with advanced overtones.
